Berliner Zeitung
A production definitely worth seeing. … such a lively and enthralling opera evening as this is one of a kind in Berlin at the moment.

Imaginativeness lurks in every corner of the staging.

Rheinischer Merkur
Novoflot plays with the pathos of the opera, and interrogates it with humour and irony. … a complex simultaneity of a high operatic standard and scenes which are completely untypical for opera.
